Thomas Jennings of FRONTLINE follows renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. In conjunction with Gawande's new best-selling book, "Being Mortal," the film explores how the medical profession can better help people navigate the final chapters of their lives with confidence, direction and purpose.

Guest Speaker and Discussion Facilitator: Rev. James L. Brooks, author of “The Unbroken Circle: A Toolkit for Congregations Around Illness, End of Life and Grief”; Named as one of Five, “Emerging Leaders” nationally in State Initiatives in End of Life Care by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
